Cape Town Harbour (2)


Photo Information
Time to reflect on the recent past!
This was the one I intended to post last summer but I selected the wrong shot. However, the black and white version is a little too grungy for my taste.
Hand-held five-shot HDR. Weird settings!
K-5/Tamron 28-300mm

Thanks Shaun! I think I must have set a fairly high speed to ensure that the camera was hand holdable.

I like it too Paul, the settings have clearly worked, with a bit of help from your processing!

Hey the settings worked out well!
My preference might have been to tone down the intense light in the background. Awesome shot(s)though. I really like it, so much that I would love to take a crack at the hdr myself...This is the kind of stuff I like, they are such great shots, many neat features and elements to bring out. A set of pics I wish I took!!
My guess is you had ghosting issues? They seem to have been managed really well.


Kind Regards,

JMD

Sorry Stewart I missed your question. I was using Photomatix Essentials up until very recently when I updated to the Pro version. I have realised that fusion works better in nine out of ten cases rather than tonemapping.
